We were given the same treatment by this website and by the admin' responsible for the waybackmachine Chris Butler info@archive.org.
His reasons and excuses varied depending on the day.
At one point he explained that this website does not delete content they collect, another time it was due to the fact that the Internet Archive's archive-it project, which is a paid service, would suffer if they began deleting content.
You can always contact http://www.cybercrime.gov//ip.html
and explain your situation.

You may want to check this site as well:
http://archive.bibalex.org, the Internet archive at the New Library of Alexandria, Egypt, mirrors the Wayback Machine. Try your search there when you have trouble connecting to the Wayback servers.

Best of luck

We are having the same issues with this organization.

We have posted the robots.txt file and emailed multiple times to all of the various contact email addresses on this site, with no response whatsoever.

What have any/all of you done to get your site/pages removed?

How have you handled this company, reported them to http://www.cybercrime.gov/

Thanks for the help!
